[xml] xsltproc, xsl:version, and alternate prefixes

I have a stylesheet that starts this way:


This used to work just fine with xsltproc, as of a year or more ago.  I'm not 
sure what version I used to use, but it was probably whatever was packaged in 
Ubuntu at the time.

This evening I went to use that transform again, and it didn't work.  I got 
this error message:

  compilation error: file /home/fdrake/projects/.../xform.xsl line 4 element 
  xsl:version is missing: document may not be a stylesheet

I checked the specification (1.0, 1.1, 2.0), and it's quite clear that this is 
processed in the usual way regarding the namespaces specification.  The 
output file seems to be generated without any problems, so I'm unsure why 
there's any output claiming an error.

Running "xsltproc --version" gives me:

  Using libxml 20627, libxslt 10120 and libexslt 813
  xsltproc was compiled against libxml 20627, libxslt 10120 and libexslt 813
  libxslt 10120 was compiled against libxml 20627
  libexslt 813 was compiled against libxml 20627

This is a stock install on Ubuntu 7.04.

Any ideas?  I hate ignoring error conditions, but this seems totally bogus.
